Family Arbitration – Solicitors in Gosforth Serving Newcastle upon Tyne, The North East and Nationally
If you have a Family problem, the anxiety and uncertainty can sometimes be overwhelming. You will want a quick, cost effective solution.
Access to the Courts has become complicated, overly expensive and fraught with delay. It can often take over 12 months to resolve, and in some cases with legal costs rising to tens of thousands of pounds after several Court Hearings.
We often recommend clients consider an alternative way of resolving their differences. Sometimes Mediation does not work. It’s too easy to walk away from a non-binding process and some often enter the process to stage the walk out.
Family Arbitration involves you and your partner or ex-partner appointing a Family Arbitrator to resolve the dispute. The Arbitrator would be an experienced Family Lawyer, and in some cases already appointed as a Deputy Court Judge. The Family Arbitrator is presented with information, documents and legal argument from your Solicitor as a Court would require, and produces an impartial and fair decision after hearing from both sides.
There are many advantages to Arbitration including speed, versatility and considerable savings in costs. At the end of the Arbitration, the parties are bound by the decision which can be converted into a formal Court Order. It’s more effective than Mediation, and other forms of collaborative approach, which are not binding.
Family Arbitrators can determine the following disputes –
- Finance & Property
- Child maintenance
- Living arrangements for children after separation
- The time children will spend with their parents
- Other arrangements concerning the upbringing of the children (e.g. schooling)
- Moving the children with one parent to a different part of England or Wales
